I read this article last night pointing out how utterly useless gun control laws are and how they only encourage black markets....

As we learned in the 1920's, prohibition doesn't work! It actually may make a perceived problem into a full scale disaster.

Yes, I read this a few weeks ago and printed it out. This is an outstanding article, should be required reading for any elected official.

Spot on, the reality is, that a free market, in which people will seek out and buy what they want, will respond and exist, no matter how much a state tries to stop it.

In it's hatred of freedom, the state will label this as a "black" market, when it is nothing more than free people engaging in commerce for goods/services they want.

The state cannot even stop drugs from being for sale in prisons.............
